I can't tell what all is going on in this sentence...  I don't know
whether it's a positioning coup or a doublespeak nightmare.  Widely
reported comment by Bush today:

  'President Bush told reporters on Tuesday that a Palestinian state
  was always "part of a vision" if Israel's right to exist is
respected.'

This was, of course, immediately applauded by the Arab League.

Anyone have the actual text of what he said?
